10 years ago

I can't help but do a little more talking about movie theaters because I love them so much!

When I was at the movies with my friend Lacee yesterday, feelings of déjà vu struck me as soon as I rolled through the doors and smelled the popcorn. It was 10 years ago that I started working at that very theater. Although different movies are showing and a new crop of employees are working, the feelings I get from being there are exactly the same. I could just picture myself being the one selling popcorn behind the concession stand, or cleaning up after the movie or selling tickets in the box office.

I truly loved that job and the experiences I had there. I have such fond memories of my 3 1/2 years at the movie theater and it's always good to be back. Although, I haven't always felt this way. After my accident it took me several years before I had the desire to go out in public, and even longer to have the desire to go back to my old theater. I'm glad I've gotten over those feelings because it's fun to go back, and I enjoy taking my friends who didn't know me before my accident there so that they can have a glimpse of what my working life was like.

Here are a few pictures from my theater days. The second picture isn't very good, but I wanted to include it anyway. (My friend Lacee that I wrote about in this post worked with me at the movie theater and we are shown in the third picture.) e

Don't you just love going to the movies. I love it. I would go every week if it weren't so expensive!! I just love being there with the crowds, the whole experience.
